Jacques Hervé

Associate Director, Clinical Operations
Research & Development

What I do at MMV:

I help to ensure that MMV's clinical programs are conducted in accordance with MMV strategy, quality standards, and within an agreed time frame and budget. I am more specifically focused on the oversight of translational proejcts from phases I to IV. 

Why I work at MMV:

In my first experience at a non-profit organization, I managed clinical operations for the Meningitis Vaccine Project at PATH. I enjoyed this very much and didn't hesitate when I was given a second chance to contribute to improving health in developing countries. 

More about me:

Prior to joining MMV in October 2019, I worked in contract research organizations (CROs), pharmaceutical companies, biotech firms and an NGO. During the past 23 years I've held the roles of Project manager and Clinical Trial Lead, as well as clinical operations roles in a variety of therapeutic areas. I also spent 4 years in Melbourne as an Office Manager for a CRO headquartered in the UK. In my last role I was a Senior Clinical Trial Lead at Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research, in Basel.

I hold two master's degrees, one in human biology and the other one in drug development, from the University of Sciences and the University of Pharmacy, respectively, both in Rennes, France.

Ask me about:

ICH GCP guidelines, SOPs, ethics and regulatory submissions, risk management, clinical sites, vendor management, clinical trial documents, study budgets and timelines. Also happy to discuss marathons and long distance running trails, and happy to practice (if/when my knees allow).
